|The 1952 Crow-Hightower House in Eads, Colorado, is significant under Criterion C in the area of Architecture at a local level of significance for its representation of a circular plan Modern Movement/Novelty style dwelling. The style is reflected in the houses circular plan, conical entrance turret, roof crenellations, contrasting blond and red brick, and innovative interior layout. The house is a relatively rare example of the round form employed in a mid-twentieth century dwelling. Eads builder Warren A. Portrey designed and constructed the house for local businessman George D. Crow. No other circular-plan residences are documented in History Colorados COMPASS database, although another round house was built in the vicinity of Eads by the same contractor and investor. One example of a round house is known to exist in Denver, and one stands in Lakewood, Colorado. The form is relatively rare nationally. A small number of such postwar houses have been documented in other states, with some architect-designed residences built in the 1950s and 1960s.
